Happy New Year: Sharing the Magic of a Streaming Wilderness Wonderland

I needed a "DC detox" so I have spent my holidays in the mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Not turning on the cable news. Not watching tweet streams. I ended 2016 with a "living Christmas Card" experience... taking a two hour dog-sled ride... in sub zero temps..in a snow storm... through the wilderness of the Grand Teton Mountains.


I definitely recommend adding this to your "Must Do List."

Enjoy  26 seconds of that ride:




Legal Notice Caveat - I want to warn you that the legal notice  you are asked to sign is scarier than the ride itself. As I scanned the document I noticed the warning of "run away dog teams." I assume that the rest of the list included things like:  avalanches; unexpected encounters with large stationary objects (boulders, trees); unexpected encounters with large  moving objects (snow mobiles, plows); unexpected encounters with wildlife (bears, cougars, wolves), sudden ejection, sled rollover...getting separated from your guide and lost in a blizzard.....helicopter rescue experiences...

Thanks to the Continental Divide  Dogsled  Adventures musher and guide Billy for a fantastic close to 2016!

Happy New Year! Wishing you a wonderful 2017.
